DeskPets RC Tank Controlled by iPhone

DeskPets RC Tank Controlled by iPhone
I think one of the coolest gadgets that has ever launched to go along with the iPhone is the AR.Drone flying machine. That thing is really cool, but so expensive that I will never buy one.

iPhone-Controlled Mini Fridge Beer Cannon

iPhone-Controlled Mini Fridge Beer Cannon
When you’re watching the big game, or in the middle of a marathon gaming session, you don’t want to have to get up and go get yourself a cold one. Why? Because you’re lazy. Don’t be mistaken, I’m just as lazy as you are.

Merry Quadrocopter Christmas

Merry Quadrocopter Christmas
If I had a Quadrocopter remote-controlled flying aircraft floating around my place, I’m not sure this is the first thing I’d do with it. But it is the holidays, and I guess the joyful Christmas spirit is strong with the guys who programmed their Quadrocopter to play a little festive holiday tune.

Gesture-Driven Robot Arm: Perfect for Remote-Controlled Stranglings

Gesture-Driven Robot Arm: Perfect for Remote-Controlled Stranglings
There are already remote-controlled robots out there that allow an operator to control robotic arms using their own hands. Doctors are even using such technologies to perform remote surgery. But this is the first time I’ve seen a robotic arm that can be controlled simply through gestures.

Force Rc Micro-Copters: Hands-on Flight Test

Force Rc Micro-Copters: Hands-on Flight Test
The guys over at Horizon Hobby were kind enough to send us a few of their Force RC remote-controlled micro-helicopters to play with, and I thought I’d share some of my experiences with you.

Kinect Hacked to Control Pr2 Robot by Willow Garage

Kinect Hacked to Control Pr2 Robot by Willow Garage
Hacks of the Microsoft Kinect are just flooding in now that the device is in the hands of geeks everywhere. I bet Microsoft never thought people would be using the Kinect for anything other than gaming as it was intended.

Mega Hurtz Tactical Robot Means Business

Mega Hurtz Tactical Robot Means Business
Most of the time when I think of robots, I think of tame little droids like R2-D2 and Asimo. But this robot-on-wheels means serious business. Created by Chris Rogers of Inspector Bots, the Mega Hurtz Tactical Robot is an seriously amped-up robotic vehicle, with enough torque to pull a 4700 pound Hummer H3.

Corvette Zr1 Pc Casemod Can Actually Drive
By starting with a 1/6th scale remote-controlled Chevy Corvette ZR1 as the basis for his casemod project, modder Bill Owen managed to create a complete desktop PC on wheels. Under the hood of his “Project blur” Vette ZR1 is a Jetway NC64 Mobile ITX motherboard, housing a Quad Core Q9000 mobile CPU.

Moogle Inspection Bot: is That a Robot in Your Crawlspace?

Moogle Inspection Bot: is That a Robot in Your Crawlspace?
This 6-inch robot is supposed to be able to go where no human has gone before: into small crawlspaces to see what’s up. Daiwan House will be putting this ‘bot on the market in April 2011 and hope making inspections a wee bit easier, thanks to their pint-sized robot pal.

Starship Enterprise Submarine: Its Dive-Year Mission

Starship Enterprise Submarine: Its Dive-Year Mission
It’s funny, I always thought when they named it the Starship Enterprise, they were talking about the type of ship that could fly through outer space. But apparently, the ship part was referring to a water-bound vessel.

Mitsubishi to Offer Virtual Test Drive, Misses Point of Test Driving

Mitsubishi to Offer Virtual Test Drive, Misses Point of Test Driving
This is the Outlander Sport. Like most new cars, you can view pictures and videos of it online. But unlike any car, you can also “test drive” it… using a computer. Sign up for Mitsubishi’s Live Drive and you’ll be given a limited time to control an actual unit via the Internet.

LEGO Metal Slug: Sports Tank

LEGO Metal Slug: Sports Tank
I’ve seen a lot of awesome things made out of LEGO, but Peer Kreuger’s remote-controlled tank is now my all-time favorite. Even though Kreuger was inspired by the Metal Slug tank, to ‘Metal Grudge’ looks straight out of Vanquish.
